grandmas-coffee-cakeThis is the best coffee cake you will ever have.  My Grandmother used to make this coffee cake when I was growing up. I loved it then and I still love it now.  We eat it for breakfast and for dessert warmed up with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.  Yum!!



1 ½ Cup Sugar – divided

1 tsp Cinnamon

½ Cup Chopped Walnuts

8 maraschino Cherries – halved and drained

1 Stick Butter

2 Eggs

2 Cups Flour

2 tsp Baking Powder

1 Cup Sour Cream

1 tsp Salt



Preheat oven to 350º

In a medium bowl, combine ½ cup sugar, cinnamon, nuts and cherries. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine 1 cup sugar, eggs, flour, baking powder, butter and salt. Mix together. Fold in the sour cream.

Grease a tube pan and pour ½ the batter in the pan. Pour ¾ of the cinnamon-sugar mixture on top of the batter. Pour the remaining batter over the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Top with the remaining ¼ of the cinnamon-sugar.
